The last installment of Nolan's Batman trilogy and one of the most anticipated films of the year, is opening in theaters on Friday July 20 and is already earning praises from movie critics.
The movie is set eight years after the events of "The Dark Knight" as Bruce Wayne/Batman (Bale) has retreated to his mansion. But a new terrorist leader, Bane (Hardy) arrives to destroy Gotham City and Bruce is forced to resurface to protect it.
Bruce will be joined by old allies in his quest to stop Bane. The movie stars Oldman as James Gordon, Caine as Alfred, Freeman as Lucius Fox, Cotillard as Miranda Tate, Gordon-Levitt as John Blake and Hathaway as Selina Kyle, "Catwoman."
Early reviews rave about the film. Read some excerpts of what movie critics are saying so far:
"Makes everything in the rival Marvel universe look thoroughly silly and childish. Entirely enveloping and at times unnerving in a relevant way one would never have imagined, as a cohesive whole this ranks as the best of Nolan's trio, even if it lacks -- how could it not? -- an element as unique as Heath Ledger's immortal turn in The Dark Knight. It's a blockbuster by any standard." - Todd McCarthy for the Hollywood Reporter.
"While The Dark Knight Rises raises the dramatic stakes considerably, at least in terms of its potential body count, it doesn't have its predecessor's breathless sense of menace or its demonic showmanship, and with the exception of one audacious sleight-of-hand twist, the story can at times seem more complicated than intricate."- Justin Chang for Variety.
"A spectacular noir epic that's equal parts murky, bloated, flashy and triumphantly cinematic. Four years after Nolan's "Batman Begins" sequel "The Dark Knight" rattled audiences with a similar audiovisual overload, the new movie falls into the same rhythm and remains viscerally satisfying even when the story falters."- Eric Kohn for indieWIRE.
